Hilo, Island of Hawaii, Hawaii
Simply put, this property sits on one of the most gorgeous ocean-front locations in East Hawaii. Unlike other ocean-front homes, you will not need to walk to the end of a yard to appreciate the Pacific waves. Here, you will feel as if you are on a ship. Simply step out onto the deck, look down and there is the Pacific ocean lapping at the shoreline below you. We have actually fished off the deck. We believe the quality of this view and proximity to dramatic breaking waves are unique among vacation rentals in East Hawaii. This is particularly so considering it is only a couple of short miles from quaint Hilo town, the seat of Hawaii County. During the whale season, humpbacks will breech and frolic so close to the house that, on occasion, it will seem as if they are putting on a show just for you. Sometimes the cove below is visited by scho... Read more

Great location A reasonably short drive from airport, quiet surroundings and close to the township of Hilo. Saul, the owner, has taken great effort to provide guests with the little things such as tea, coffee, condiments etc that one might need to get a meal together Plenty of sightseeing to be done without having to travel great distances Loved the...

Management response:

I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. I tried to make it clear on the website that there are one and a half bathrooms upstairs and an outdoor shower. I'm sorry that you didn't catch that. As far as the downstairs clothing line is concerned, most guests prefer to use the brand new dryer which is located just off...

If I owned this house, I don't think I would ever be able to leave. Never have I slept in a place that felt so magically beautiful and so soothingly healing. Every molecule in my body felt as if it were dancing during my short stay in this house (two days). I wish my visit had been longer. I'm a...

About the neighbourhood
Hilo is perhaps the most culturally Hawaiian large town in the state. You will find much to enjoy there from terrific restaurants to the farmers market, from the beautiful downtown Palace Theater to the Japanese garden.

The Puna district as a whole has some fascinating places to visit such as the Queen's hot ponds, the Champagne ponds, the charming town of Pahoa and of course the chance to visit the lava flow.

The house is perfectly situated to explore the Hamakua coast as well as lower Puna.
Getting around
You will absolutely need a car and you will need a four-wheel-drive vehicle if you wish to travel up to the top of Mauna Kea. Of course there are tours double take you if you wish.

How to get there
Airport: Hilo international airport: 10.0 km
Our house is located a mere three minutes drive from downtown Hilo; a town which has all the amenities you would expect from one with a population of 40,000. The house sits on an ocean-front cliff on a quiet cul-de-sac in a very safe neighborhood.

East Hawaii offers visitors a far more honest and intimate look at Polynesian island life and culture than other, more tourist-oriented parts of Hawaii. Although cruise ships do come into Hilo bay on an almost daily basis (and sail right past the house) the town itself does not rely on tourist dollars to survive. This is a real Hawaiian town, where people live, work and play without ever feeling a need to cater to tourists with the brash, artificial imagery and entertainment found elsewhere in the state. That is not to say that people here are u...
